The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) Executive Committee voted unanimously to induct City of Gaithersburg City Manager Tony Tomasello into the GGCC Hall of Fame.
The purpose of the Hall of Fame Award is to recognize and honor a Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce member who demonstrates outstanding service, commitment and involvement in the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber.

Tomasello will be inducted on Thursday, December 5 at the GGCC’s Annual Celebration Dinner & Awards Ceremony to be held at 7:00 p.m. at the Hilton Washington DC North/Gaithersburg, 620 Perry Parkway, Gaithersburg.
“The Hall of Fame is reserved for individuals or companies that have really done something extraordinary in supporting the business climate of the Gaithersburg-Germantown area. This is someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty. Tony Tomasello perfectly fits that description. He has been a tremendous asset to the Chamber of Commerce and tremendous asset to the City of Gaithersburg,” said GGCC President Marilyn Balcombe
